More To Come........
Great post with amazing pictures, Naomi! I also love Jeff Bridges. I am looking forward to see "Crazy Heart" soon.
Have a nice day dear Naomi!
I was delighted that he got the SAG and the Golden Globe awards. I agree with every word you've written here. I can't wait to see Crazy Heart!
Can't wait to see this movie - thanks for the recommendation. It was filmed right here in New Mexico, which everyone is now calling "Tamalewood" because of its booming film industry.
I read that even though his body of work is impeccable, that he hasn't won as many awards as he should have because unlike a lot of "celebrities," he's an "actor" and doesn't campaign for the awards. Is that true? The article I read was full of praise not only for his acting, but also for his character and his true identity as an actor and not a celebrity. This movie hasn't come close to us yet. I may have to Netflix it if it doesn't come our way.
I loved "The Fabulous Baker Boys",and I'm a big fan of Michelle Pfeiffer.
I'll have to check out more of these films because I hardly seen any of them at all.
Thanks for the reviews Naomi!
Love everything that Jeff does.
I kind of feel about him the same way I felt about Mickey Rourke's acclaim in The Wrestler: long overdue.
(BTW, is it just me, or is Jeff Bridges morphing into Kris Kristofferson?)
You've really done him justice here! I have been a fan of his and Beau's for a long time, and of course, their dad. I will have to make a point to see that new movie. Thanks, Naomi.
oh m'gosh Naomi.. I've loved Jeff Bridges forever..and loved his dad too!!
Starman is one of my favorite all time movies! I never miss it when it's on television!! and you are right he is very very handsome!!! I've watched the awards and I am like the audience, I wanted to give him a standing ovation too!! I had forgotten that you mentioned before about Betty being his godmother..sheesh.. that's a great photo of them together !!!
I'll be hoping he gets an oscar to make this year his best yet!!
I have to tell you - I was thrilled that he won when I saw the Golden Globe. Certainly think he should win the Oscar!
He has always been a favorite of mine - as his brother!!!
Those sexy brothers are amazing, aren't they? Lucky Betty! ;)
Of course, there's their talent as well. I don't think I've seen a bad Jeff Bridges film. Actually, I missed a few of these that you mentioned, but that's what NetFlix is for.
I'm definitely seeing Crazy Heart after your wonderful review. All your recommendations have been great! Btw, I just added Grey Gardens to my queue, the movie, not the documentary. I can't wait to see Drew Barrymore as Little Edie!
Have a beautiful Wednesday, my friend. I'll be thinking of you as I pass your old street on my way to Lincoln Road!
He is so very talented and quite the handsome man too! I will have to see Crazy Heart.
In the first photo I thought it was Kris Kristofferson! Amazing how the hair and beards can change how a person looks! I hope he wins the Grammy, but as you say..you never know how it'll go. I wish him all the luck in winning!
He's one of my favorite actors too. And I remember his mother's poetry. It was swell, and she never stopped loving her husband. Lots of wisdom in that little book...
Just when I think you can't surprise me anymore with your connections, you do it again! I do hope he wins the Oscar. He certainly deserves it.
Looking forward to Crazy Heart. The Bridges family has impressed me through out the years for their talent but also for the way they have lead their lives off screen. Throw in darn good looking and you have the perfect actors.
It's been such a long time since there were so many movies out at the same time I want to see. But your review just bumped Crazy Heart from "Want" to "Must" see.
The charm in Jeff Bridges is that he appears to really like his work. His life. That makes his presence a blessing. On film- and I imagine, in life.
I am a HUGE Bridge boys fan and have seen all their movies. I too favor The Baker Brothers, and can't wait to see Jeff's latest. What I love most about him is what a good guy he is, a man who know the value of loving a woman forever. I just love him all the more after reading your blog and knowing he is the real deal.
Did you think of me when you wrote this, Naomi, knowing how much I love Jeff Bridges and after the poem I wrote about the Golden Globes? I missed the SAG awards and the other but am looking forward to the Academy Awards. I hope the channel comes in! You mentioned some of my favorite Brides movies, like Fisher King and the Big L. How about Starman? Can't wait to see this latest!
PS Did you know he has a blog (of sorts). Check it out here: http://www.jeffbridges.com/
I like the way he remembers his parents in so many of the interviews and acceptance speeches.
Ah, The Big Lebowski - it's a rule here that if it's on t.v. when flipping through the channels that we have to watch it.
absolutely one of my favorite actors! it's always been a pleasure to watch him work. xoxoxo
(i thought of you as i watched the news about l.a. and hope all is well with you!)
what a neat connection between you and jeff...he is one of my fav. actors and i was so glad he won his awards..loved his speeches. i haven't seen this movie yet but definitely plan to!
great minds do think alike my wonderful, far more knowledgeable friend :)
you know I adore Jeff
I was checking out a bit of his other interests on his website
he's just wonderful!!
Hi dear Naomi,
Did you know that when I was a young girl I loved to see on tv Loyd Bridges movies?
Flora don't allows that Lisa and Brahma get in the house. She barks very angry and put both away. Lol!
But in the garden they play together pacifically. Flora is very territorial, I think.
Lisa, Brahma and Flora send kisses to you and to Swettie too.
(((Kisses and hugs))))
I'll keep my eye out for 'Crazy Heart'... Both Jeff and Beau have starred in some great films haven't they? ANd I love your connection to him. Cool.
Jeff Bridges is one of my favorite actors also and i very much hope he gets the Oscar. It will be richly deserved. He's the whole package and one of those guys who got better looking the older he got. Dare I say it? Yes, I do... yummmmmm
Hmmm, well, I'm not usually a fan of those "Jeff" people in general. Heh. Just a personal bias of mine. But, I do like Mr. Bridges and he does have great talent. Like you, I hope this is his year. *crosses fingers*
Jeff Bridges is probably one of the most talented actors around at the monet and as you say, he makes it look so easy and natural too.
I became a fan from The Big Lebowski and no matter how many times I see that film I see something new in his performance - all the little nuances. I beleive he is also a talented photographer too and he seems like a real good guy and gentleman. I so hope he wins :)
Way back when I used to watch the father - Lloyd on TV with my boys and have always been a fan of the family. I'm rooting for Jeff to get a long deserved Oscar. To me he is Mr Cool and I can't wait to see his new film.
Oh what a great post Naomi. I must admit when he won these awards recently I immediately thought of you and Betty. What handsome guys they are, he and Beau. I always had a bit of a crush on Beau - he is kind of the cuddly type to me, lol!!
I am looking forward to seeing this film and fingers crossed that he does win an Oscar. Something tells me its going to be a definite! By the way your posts are so thorough and well researched. I learn so much every time I read one all the way over here in Oz. Take Care.
I hear this movie is awesome! I can't wait to see it!
You already know what I think, so YEAH again haha.
Oscar - why yes I think SO ;)
I really like Jeff Bridges. He has had some wonderful films but the Great Lebowski is just one of a kind. One of the funniest movies I've ever seen. I hope he takes the Oscar. I doubt he will feel like the most underappreciated actor in Hollywood anymore!
